school and getting into politics, joined with senator john mccain, massachusetts senator mo count, and peter king to introduce a resolution to pardon jack johnson. jack johnson was a legendary competitor that defined an era of american boxing and raised the war for all american athletics, said senator reid. his memory was unjustly tarnished, and it is time to recast his legacy. senator john mccain said we can never completely right the wrong perpetrated against jack johnson during his lifetime, but this pardon is a small, meaningful step toward acknowledging his mistreatment before the law and celebrating his legacy of athletic greatness and historical significance. senator cowan said jack johnson was one of the great african-american athletes, his skill and perseverance to get back up every time he was knocked down made him a champion in the eyes of the sports world and for those that like him pursued their dreams despite racial in tolerance. jack king said he is a trail blazer and legend whose boxing career was cut short due to unjust laws and racial persecution. i urge congress

was referring when he words used like "old, stale, moss-covered." he was referring to senator john mccain who called senator paul weirdo. he did it on the senate caucus if private. where i understand he used other words. he did out on the senate floor, place where senators traditionally have not personally sought to offend or name-call their colleagues. senator paul has staked out, as charles said, mara as well, the position of his father. he does it in a more reasonable and broader based way. probably burst a bubble on the scene with that filibuster the other day. where everybody was watching. nerve the country was watching him. he was being cheered even by the left. code pink supports rand paul and sky didn't fall the next day. >> bret: i think it was wacko birds that john mccain said. last word, mara? >> rand paul says he is a social issue conservative on abortion, so he is trying to marry the two strains. but he is a pretty pure libertarian on almost everything else. >> yes. >> he found a way to break through with the populist completely uncontroversial proposal that the american governme

defense hogs like john mccain and lindsey graham as stale and moss covered. there is a war weariness in the country. should the republican party in trying to grow the party and field the new voters should it be pulling back on national defense? >> i grew up in the air rafferty the $800 hammer and $600 toilet seat. there are efficiencies there. if you are looking to the county tuesday for something that the government is actually supposed to be involved in, it is defending the country. thsequestration was the most hm handed way of dealing with thing. they won't give an inch and it is incumbent upon us to find the sweet spot. boehner tried to do it with the president and the president isn't willing. we have to find the sweet spot that includes the pentagon. >> chris: you said dysfunction and kind of motioned in mr. kibbe's direction. do you think the tea party is adding to the dysfunction in washington? >> not at all. i think the tea party is an important part of the coalition that is the republican party. my difficulty with not necessarily mr. kibbe's groups but other groups like his

of a finer u.s. senator on either side of the aisle. and i don't have to speak to john mccain's reputation when it comes to military service. we know the story. a navy pilot shot down over vietnam, captured and held captive, subjected to torture for more than five years. john's body still bears the scars of that terrible experience. thank god he survived it and he continues to serve here in the united states senate representing the people of arizona and literally the nation in his capacity as a u.s. senator. he has been the ranking republican on the armed services committee so he knows issues not only as a veteran -- a man who served in the vietnam war -- but also as a senator who has looked closely as each of the issues that affect the department of defense. he doesn't hold a candle to anyone -- take a step back to anyone when it comes to his commitment to our military and our nation's defense. and now it's my responsibility to come to the floor of the senate and argue against an amendment that senator mccain is offering on the department of defense bill. you think to yourself, durbin, ho

cruz behind the scenes has offended john mccain, lindsay graham, over the filibuster against john brennan he has managed to ruffle a lot of feather in both political parties. >>> ted cruz has promised to shake things up in his own party. remember during the confirmation hearing for chuck hagel, remember during the benghazi hearings with senator clinton. he was tonally the most aggressive. he is not playing by the traditional rules of the senate. and to be frank, the people who support ted cruz, many of the people who voted for him, that's exactly what they want. >> but amy walter, at some point the senate is senate. he's going to need republican support and democratic support to get through something he needs. john mccain called him a whacko bird. >> the other day ted cruz said i take that as a badge of honor. to chris's point, you have to give ted cruz some credit. which he came with this tea party fervor and it hasn't gone away. but the senate and the house are two very different places. folks in the senate will tell you this is the place where decorum and rules and you know, th

's a warning, it's a caution sign for democrats and republicans such as john mccain who are really hoping that this signals something. marco rubio that signals this is a break through for the fact that he didn't mention it. shows a certain level of discomfort or hesitation of bringing it up in a crowd where he knows there are people there who do not agree with the idea of comprehensive immigration reform. this is a marco rubio is a guy who within the white house, they are obsessed with marco rubio's moves for the very fact that he's viewed as a very credible messenger for republicans on immigration, democrats fear him. republicans know that he's very good at talking about this issue and the fact that he didn't bring it up in that forum just as michael steele said, it could have, it was a missed opportunity. >> especially since the cpac, the cpac audience is a mixed bag. he's not talking to the house raucous caucus of republicans. as the chairman points out, it is a way to try and at least get the troops on board. >> what's discouraging about it is he's trying to do two things right now. o
